Seawheeze- Pre-Race Fun


Yesterday I talked about the challenges I experienced travelling to and from Vancouver but now I get to talk about the amazing highlights of my trip including the fun packed day before the race. I knew that there was a festival after the race, but I had no idea there would be so much to do the day before! I finally…

How to Stay Healthy While Camping


I recently went camping for a weekend and the way I ate was atrocious! I legit felt gross when I got home. Chips, candy, pop, beer- yeesh! But that always seems to be the case when we go camping. We purchase healthy meal options (wraps, steak & veggies, eggs) but then we stock up on super unhealthy snacks and snack all weekend…

Bikini Ready Challenge- Week 2 Recap


Wow! I’m already halfway through this challenge which is crazy to think about since it feels like I’ve just started. Let’s recap this past week. My legs feel lighter- I know that steady training has also contributed to running getting easier but my legs legitimately feel lighter. For years running was difficult because I couldn’t pick up my legs, I would…

Bikini Ready Challenge- Week 1 Recap


A week has already gone by since I started the Bikini Ready Challenge so let’s talk about it! Energy– I have way more natural energy than normal. I swapped out my morning pick me up coffee with the bloat banisher drink and it wakes me up just as good as the coffee did! Because their meal plan has us eating throughout…

Friday Fitness Recap- June 3


It’s June 3rd- any Gilmore Girls fans out there know what today should  have been? God I’m a nerd. Anyway, hi and hello! This week started off awesome with a hike in Waterton and a long run on Saturday but I have been struggling to keep up with my training program. Part of the reason is because Monday and Wednesdays are…

Tweak Your Tea


I have always been obsessed with peach iced tea. When I lived in Washington I used to buy the enormous 32 ounce cans for $0.99- it was my go to summer drink. Needless to say, those drinks have a TON of sugar in them but I just didn’t care because it tasted so good and it was such a refreshing…

Breakfast Prep


I’m getting up a lot earlier these days with 8 a.m. classes and a nearly hour long drive to school so I’ve gotten in the habit of prepping my breakfasts on Sunday in order to eat them in the car on the way to school. Every Sunday I cook up a big pot oatmeal and mix it with honey and…

Grandma’s Chicken & Veggie Soup Recipe


I grew up eating grandma’s chicken stew, it was my favourite meal. As an adult it’s my favourite to make because it’s cheap, tasty, and a filling winter meal. Grandma always measured things “by gosh and by golly”  so I don’t have servings for you all. Meat (I like to use roast chicken leftovers) Veggie Stock Carrots Potatoes Celery Green Onion Yellow…

Leanfit Completegreen Protein Powder


Hello! Whenever I’m approached by Canadian companies I always jump on the chance to try their product and promote them, so when Leanfit approached me to try and review their Completegreen protein powder I jumped at the chance. Finding a good protein powder that is dairy free can be difficult and you often have to go to a health food…

Catelli- Feed The Hope & Pasta Giveaway


This is a sponsored post but, as always, my thoughts and opinions are my own. When I was approached by Catelli to share information on their  Feed the Hope campaign and to try out a recipe from their online cookbook, I didn’t think much would come of it. Because I’m gluten and dairy free, most food companies that approach me…

Kooee! Super Snacks- a Perfect Hiking Snack


I first heard of Kooee! Super Snacks through Girls Gone Sporty and I thought it sounded like a perfect product for me (Jerky Trail Mix) so I asked the company to send a few sample packs. KOOEE! Jerky Trail Mix is a super healthy snack.  It’s high in protein, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and has no added sugar, preservatives, nitrates or anything…

I finally bought a spiralizer!


I have been reading about zucchini noodles for quite awhile now and FINALLY bought one for $15 on Amazon. I goggled how to make them and this is what I did: Peel and cut off the ends (duh!) Send through spiralizer. There was a cap thing that looked like it should help you twist the ends all the way through…

Friday Fitness Recap


I am officially reinstating Friday Fitness Recaps! Is it cheap that I’m doing it again because I’m working out again? Maybe. Ha ha! But I want to improve my blog in 2014- I’m working with a designer for a new look and I want to get a few weekly posts going. Fit Tip Tuesday is one of them and now…

How to Stop Snacking at Night


I am trying to get serious about my fitness and I keep hearing “You can’t out exercise a bad diet” which I will admit I have been trying to do. I have no problems working out regularly, I enjoy it. My biggest problem is eating- ESPECIALLY eating at night. I will be doing awesome all day but the minute I…

Home-made Salsa Recipe!


In an effort to save money and eat better Ryan and I are NOT eating out any more which for us is a big lifestyle change. However, in two weeks we have only eaten at a restuarant once and I am noticing my belly is a little flatter than it was before. The recipe: 1/2 red pepper diced 1/2 onion…
